Defendant convicted of prostituting Modesto girl

A 34-year-old man on Monday was convicted of luring a Modesto girl on Facebook and taking her to Fresno, where she worked as a prostitute.

Tryvell Powell, of Fresno, pleaded guilty to sex trafficking of a minor, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Sacramento. The defendant is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 19. He faces a minimum sentence of 10 years to life in federal prison.

Federal prosecutors said Powell communicated with the 16-year-old girl on Facebook and persuaded her to leave her Modesto home and travel to Fresno. She then engaged in sex acts with strangers at Powell’s request to make money off her, according to the prosecutors.

A relative of the girl reported seeing pictures of the teen in an online advertisement for prostitution, according to court documents. Fresno detectives used the advertisements to contact the girl and arrest Powell.

This case is the result of an investigation by the FBI and the Fresno Police Department. The also is a part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative by the U.S. Department of Justice to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse.

Stupid Missouri man kills father by lying on his head to ‘prove a point’

A Missouri man was charged Sunday with murdering his 74-year-old father by lying on his head until the man lost consciousness, to prove “how big and bad” he was, authorities said.

Kyle Webb, 44, of Grandview, Missouri, is charged with killing Franklin Webb late Saturday night at a home they shared after the father complained about the way his son was cleaning up around a leaky pipe, according to a police report.

Kyle Webb admitted the killing, telling police that he became angry at his father’s complaints and attempted to scare him by acting as though he was going to hit him with an empty vodka bottle, according to the police report. Franklin Webb then tried to punch his son but fell back, hitting a kitchen chair before falling to the floor where the son jumped on top of him, the police report states.

“I had to prove how big and bad I was,” Kyle Webb told police, according to the police report.

Kyle Webb told police he positioned his father’s arm across his throat and then laid himself across his head as the man lay face down on the floor. He sat on his head for up to 12 minutes, the police report states, because the son said he wanted to “prove a point” that he could control his father.

After the man lost consciousness, the son waited two to three minutes before calling police, the police report states.

The father was taken to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The son said he did not intend to kill his father, only to make him pass out, the police report states.

The Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office charged Webb with second degree murder. Grandview is a southern suburb of the Kansas City, Missouri, metropolitan area.

What a fucking idiot…….

Dipshit of the day:Ex-NFL Player Catches Ex-Teammate Burglarizing His Home

When former NFL wide receiver Bernard Berrian reviewed his home security tape after a burglary in April, he was surprised by what he saw, according to CBS Sports.

What he saw was his former college teammate Therrian Fontenot burglarizing his home, writes the news outlet. The two played football together at California State University at Fresno, while Berrian went on to play for the Vikings and Bears.

Before the robbery, the two were attending the same barbecue, the report says.

“It was crazy because we were all sitting around and he actually left from where we were at to go do it,” Berrian told ABC30.com in Fresno, Calif. “Boom, motion sensor went off, I get an email, so I click on the live cam.”

Berrian installed the security system because he had been robbed at least two other times and now suspects his ex-teammate of those thefts too, writes the news outlet.

“He would always call me and try to ask me where I was, make sure I was out of town,” Berrian said of Fontenot, writes CBS Sports. “If I was home all the time, he’d blow up other friends in the crew asking them the same question, where’s Bernard, how come he’s not answering his phone.”

Fontenot, who spent time in training camp in 2005 with the Packers and in 2006 with the Browns, pleaded no contest to the burglary that was caught on film and will now spend six months in jail, the report says.

“I mean I hate seeing people go to jail and I hate seeing people get locked up but he got what he had coming to him,” Berrian said, writes the news outlet.

With friends like that, who needs enemies, right?
